Micro Spikes

Date walked: 22/05/2020

Hi folks. After suffering a rather heavy fall last year on a steep wet decent in Perthshire, I have been looking at boots with better traction (I have since bought walking poles). I noticed on a YouTube vlog that a walker was carrying micro spikes.
I haven’t heard of these before and they seem appropriate for wet descents, but with little on Google to support my theory.
Could anyone recommend these as appropriate footwear on steep, wet descents so that I can minimise the risk of another fall?
Many thanks, Colin
